BACK Early Rising’, Farmer’s Monthly Visitor, 30 Nov. 1849, 163. here  6. Is its rational to rise early. - To lay snoring in the morning after the sun is up, or even after early dawn, not only renders us like brutes, but  like brutes of the most stupid sort - the wood-chuck, the bear, the marmot and the swine. This passage compares those who “lay snoring in the morning after the sun is up, or even after early dawn” to four specific ‘brutes’ not to “much of brute creation” as Ekirch asserts.
